Replacing the carbon brushes requires some skill if you want them to run with out arcing and to last well,
1 You need the commutator not to be buckled,
2 Run the motor with new brushes and apply comm sticks to commutator just in front of carbon brush so to dragging it in under the leading edge of brush
3 The motor must be run under a load applied and off for a couple of minutes but careful not to burn it out, if you still have arcing from the brush repeat from step 2 and be patient.. www.dysonpeople.co.uk

You may have to replace the whole motor. Dyson and all other compnay have gone to complete motor replacements. If carbon wear out, it a sign that the cominutator of the armature is bad. Simply put a new motor runs about \$85.00 to \$125.00 for a Dyson

### The brushes on my Dyson V6 sweeper attachment won't turn despite being fully charged.

If it's in warranty, call Dyson. If it's not, take it to your local vac shop for diagnosis.

### My dyson dc62 cuts in and out what do I do?

This is usually a sign the brushes on the motor are worn. If you have a local vac repair centre you can either get them to repair or if your handy you can strip and replace yourself(not easy option). But it is normal for brushes to wear.

### Dyson DC 50 Serialno AH6-UK-EHA1562A. rEQUIRE NEW BLACK BRUSHES, D I NEED TO BUY A NEW ASSEMBLY OR CAN i BUY THE BRUSHES?

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC50's brush bar comes as a complete assembly. The soft black anti-static carbon fibre filaments aren't available as individual components.

However if the carbon fibre filaments on your DC50's brush bar are worn or damaged in some way, we may be able to help. If you can email a clear picture of the issue to me directly at help@dyson.co.uk, I'll be in touch as soon as possible to provide further assistance. If you can also include your full home address and post code, as well as your contact phone number and the date on which you purchased your machine, that would be very helpful to us.

I'll look forward to hearing from you.

### Why does my dyson vac keep snapping belts

You are probably jamming up the brushes, check to see if brushes move freely and are free of hair or string buildup or any other items blocking them from spinning

### How to change carbon brushes

You need to know that very seldom will new carbon brushes alone `FIX`a motor in todays vacuums as they are higher RPM than those of 30 years ago.
On a salvageable motor a good rebuild procedure will generally include repacking bearings, cleaning suction fans and reseating new brushes with an abrasive seating stone at low speed with a motor run in device with variable voltage

That said, I have not done a HENRY in years but it likely will contain a generic AMTEK Lamb type motor as it is sold as more durable vac.
On a traditional vac motor, carbon brushes are removed by releasing a clamp over the brush. The brush holder will have either a flag terminal on it where the wiring will disconnect from the side, or a flat flag terminal which slides into a pocket on the carbon brush housing.
. If you are going to the trouble of replacing the brushes, remove and inspect the old ones for wear and chipping. Also inspect the commutator surface on the motor where the brushes contact. If there are any curved gaps between segments, or if the com is worn like an apple core , you need a motor complete.
If the motor has simply worn to the point where a brush has stuck or worn to nothing, you may be bale to reseat the new brushes, however any evidednce of BLUE sparks or noise is not a good sign . Best of luck. Post back if you need more help

Detach the vac itself from low voltage thin wiring leading to the house. With the vac plugged into power, try the manual switch and then try shorting across the low voltage exterior terminals with a rubber gripped set of pliers.
If you can hear a clicking inside, this is the vac's relay trying to start the motor. If the vac is more than 5 years old , or used more than 2 hours a week, you may need new carbon brushes, or a motor overhaul or replacement depending on wear. Carbon brushes are specific to the motor model # inside the vac, most often an AMTEK Lamb motor.
If you need brushes, the motors comutator should also be inspected for excess,wear, like gap ing between its conatct segments and "apple core" shaped wear
.
You you have a meter and can test for continuity across the motor leads, do so and post back.

If you don't have a meter, you will likely want to lift the vac off the wall after these checks and take to a repair shop, saving \$\$\$\$ for a house call...
